Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad is celebrating the 11th Convocation in the physical mode for the first-time post-pandemic in the gracious presence of Prof Subra Suresh, President, NTU Singapore, as Chief Guest of the event. A total of 873 students are getting 884 degrees (UG: 282, PG: 468, PhD: 134), with 4 Gold Medals & 32 Silver Medals. It is the highest number of graduates in a year so far, not only at IITH but also possibly at any second-generation IIT in India.

This number also includes the first-time graduating batch of our unique Interdisciplinary & Industry-oriented programs: Additive Manufacturing, Energy Science & Technology, E-Waste Resource Engineering & Management, Integrated Sensor systems, Polymers and Biosystems Engineering, and Smart Mobility. IITHians will adore the specially designed Pochampalli Stoles this year too, as IITH’s Historical Tradition of getting connected to the Culture of the State of Telangana. Motivating future leaders on this occasion with kind words, Dr B V R Mohan Reddy, Chairman, BoG, IITH, has declared the out-going students the graduates.

It was indeed a magnificent year of IIT Hyderabad being an entrant to Top-7 ahead of two 1st Gen IITs in ARIIA 2021 Ranking, a new department of Heritage, Science & Technology, new Centres of Excellence with NHAI & ICMR and the establishment of various state-of-the-art facilities that include Departmental, Research, Innovation & Entrepreneurial facilities.

Congratulating IITH graduates on occasion, Prof Subra Suresh, President, NTU Singapore, said, “Never underestimate the power of one university, one individual, one idea, one act of courage, or one program to have a significant influence on local and global society. Contemplate, cultivate, and elevate your global and historical perspective with patience and compassion, always. Combined with the strong education you have received from IIT Hyderabad, you will have an impact not just on your local community or country but on the entire humanity. To maximize the power of one, that is you; it is critical that your perspectives do not focus only on the individual but also on the collective, not just on the local community but equally on the implications of your actions on the world around you. This requires broad-mindedness and convictions grounded in principles and values”.

Cheering the graduates with the urge to keep the IIT Hyderabad flag high, Prof B S Murty, Director IITH, presented the Institute Report for Academic Year 2021-2022 and added, “While attempting to portray the journey of IITH last year, through various waves of the pandemic and its after-effects, I realized that we excellently leveraged the digital prowess to overcome the hollowness created by the Pandemic. The transformation from live to online was well managed to be contactless yet even more connected. As it is said, every wave of life teaches a lesson; we have learned to nail the situation with Resilience, Solidarity, and Innovation. Last year, we crossed a major milestone of successfully graduating 10 batches of students year after year, increasing our number of students and building the infrastructure necessary for it. I am happy to inform you that from this year onwards we will be celebrating the success of the Decennial batch of graduates every year”.
